Gallery & Museums

A little cultural enlightenment from Lowe Electrical

June 2015

Lowe Electrical Contractors, based in Leicester have been managing the electrical requirements at Museums and Galleries for many years.

When was the last time you visited a museum or gallery? Do you remember the lighting, how the artworks and subjects were lit?

LEDs are now becoming the light solution of choice for many museums and galleries and the advantages are plentiful.

We all know that LEDs last longer; so replacing bulbs can be carried out less often with the average LED bulb lasting up to 50,000 hours.

LEDs contain little infrared and no ultra-violet; this means sensitive objects may not need additional filters for protection.

Manufacturers are offering a lot of choice today and no matter where the light has to project from; there are solutions available.

Reducing the carbon footprint is also an obvious plus point when considering the installation of LED energy-efficient bulbs.

*In one reported case study, Manchester Art Gallery reduced its energy consumption by 89% by introducing occupancy sensors and programmable lighting controls, the museum also replaced fluorescent tubes and dichroic lamps with LED lamps. The National Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery, both in London, have also installed LEDs in many of their galleries.

Our specialist Contracts Manager works closely with Museums and Galleries carrying out installations and reactive maintenance across Leicestershire. Our services for these sites not only includes power and lighting design and installation, but a whole range of other facilities, take a look at our web page here
